Convictions and other criminal system contact jeopardize eligibility for asylum and withholding of removal. Recent regulations have expanded these criminal bars to these critical forms of protection from persecution. This webinar will discuss up-to-date case law on the “particularly serious crime” and other regulatory criminal bars to asylum and withholding, strategies for challenging criminal bars in immigration court, and pursuing protection under the Convention Against Torture (“CAT”) for clients who are not eligible for asylum or withholding due to convictions or other criminal bars.
